If it runs and pumps water, 250 for the Tohatsu is a steal. If the boat is 75, you cant really go wrong, its less than a tank of fuel.

I've also been offered the same boat as I linked to but shand it has had a repair to the bottom and the transom but its only 75 I thought at this price if it lasts a couple of years I can change it and keep my engine for the new 1.
Any photos? Ebay link etc?

I think the 1 I linked to above is potentially a better buy.

Once you start looking in earnest it gets harder to make a decision

Just my thoughts.

The engine you linked to looks in good condition for its age (its old) but if you believe the description then it should be ok as a starter to see if you and your family 'like boating' you should get your money back on it if you decide to sell.

I would wait for the auction to 'run its course' maybe put a bid on now of say 150.00 then 10 seconds before it ends put a bid on it of 250.00 you should 'pick it up abit cheaper, but......if you want to make sure its yours then press the 'buy it now' then start looking for a boat
